Aces, Rams meet in week 3 rematch

Defiance County rivals Tinora and Hicksville will tee up the pigskin on Saturday night at 7 p.m. in the D-VI playoffs four weeks after a 41-0 Rams’ win at Aces’ Field.
Hicksville mentor Lucas Smith is hopeful his team has improved enough to make the rematch much more interesting.
“I know we are different, we have improved and are excited for the opportunity,” explained Smith. “Tinora also tends to get better as the season progresses. I’m hoping that our two extra games have helped us identify weakness and areas of improvement.”

“Don’t let their record fool you,” stressed Hicksville leadman Lucas Smith. “They might be the best 1-5 team in the state, they have size, speed and talent.
